I’m trying to add a very basic authentication for my website as it is still under development.
I’ve added this lines (according to this article):
# Kirby .htaccess AuthType Basic AuthName "Password Protected Area" AuthUserFile /.htpasswds/mypasswd Require valid-user [...] then the standard Kirby htaccess with RewriteBase /
But I get a 500 internal server. My doubt is that the folder where the Apache configuration is looking for a passwd file is outside the Kirby folder (for security reasons):
. ├── / ├── ./.htpasswds/mypasswd ├── public_html/ ├── kirbycms ├── .htaccess
I tried to move the file inside the folder, outside, rename etc but nothing happens.
Do you have any suggestions?
